Overview

The light and views over the valley to the Luberon mountain are amazing and inspiring, whether from the bedroom, living room, balcony or sun terrace.
The house has one bedroom and is very well equipped and furnished, with hand-made tiles and furniture, and a hand-made kitchen. There are also modern touches like wireless internet and satellite TV, with VCR/DVD player.
As well as the terrace there is an off-street parking spot, which is something or a rarity in these medieval villages.
Menerbes is where Peter Mayle wrote "A Year in Provence", it is a perfect little unspoilt Provence hill-top village with bakery, butcher, grocery, a few restaurants and a cafe. All around are the other hill-top villages of the Luberon: Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lacoste, Lourmarin, as well as Isle sur la Sorgue (France's antiques capital) and Fontaine de Vaucluse where the Sorgue river comes gushing out of the ground.
Within an hour are Arles, Nimes, Avignon, Aix en Provence, Les Baux, Orange, Mont Ventoux, St Remy, and within two hours are the Cote d'Azur, Camargue, Gorges du Verdon and Rhone wine trail.
This is a perfect location for exploring the rest of Provence. See the house in more detail here:

Location & area

In Provence, everything simply tastes, smells, and looks better than at home. And it is all right on your doorstep.



Here are some of the many things you can do using Menerbes as your base:


• Choose from an endless number of walks in the 120,000 ha Luberon Natural Park, starting from your doorstep.

• Go to the local markets and rediscover what food used to taste like.

• Long, lazy lunches (and dinners) outside.

• Lose the extra calories by cycling round the famous hilltop villages: Gordes, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Roussillon, Lourmarin, Oppede-le-vieux, etc.

• Antique and bric-a-brac hunting at Isle-sur-Sorgue – France's antiques capital.

• Explore Fontaine de Vaucluse - the extraordinary source of the crystal-clear Sorgue river (or ride a canoe down it).

• Visit the Marquis de Sade's castle at neighbouring Lacoste

• Bump into Princess Caroline at chi-chi St Remy.

• Learn to paint sunflowers.

• Picnic in the cedar forests outside lovely Bonnieux.

• Drive to the top of Mont Ventoux (cycle if you're mad) and let the Alps and the Med take your breath away.

• Marseille, 1 hour away, is France's most exciting city, and home to the world's best bouillabaisse.

• Avignon, half an hour away, is a fascinating medieval city small enough to walk round in a day.

• Go wine-tasting at the local vineyards or venture just beyond Avignon for some great Rhone wines.

• Day trips to Monte Carlo, Cannes, St Tropez, the Cote d'Azur, the Camargue, Arles, Aix, Orange, Gorges du Verdon, Rhone wine trail, even Italy and Spain if you leave early.



This is a year-round destination - the Luberon in winter is as beautiful in its way as during the long summer that can stretch from May to October. As Peter Mayle discovered, in the off-season the Luberon is all yours - there will not be crowds, but there will be truffles and fabulous dinners. And in every month there are days when it is warm enough to eat outside in the Provencal sun. When it is cold, you will appreciate the under-floor heating, the mist hanging in the valley below, the odd wisp of smoke punctuating the scene.
